Transcript of SPECIAL EDUCATION + COMMON CORE

POSSIBLE
IMPLICATIONS

DATE: Monday, October 21, 2013
CREATED BY: Jodi O'Connor
TEAM: Special Education Professional Development Leaders
OBJECTIVE
By the end of this breakout session, we will be able to (individually) analyze and discuss (with small groups) the implications of Common Core for Special Education students by using two academic discourse activities.
IMPLICATION 1
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) initiative provides an historic opportunity to improve access to rigorous academic content standards for students with disabilities. (McLaughlin, 2012).
IMPLICATION 2
With the implementation of Common Core State Standards, students receiving Special Education will have fewer, clear, and higher standards. (McNulty and Gloeckler)
IMPLICATION 3
At your table, you have an article related to the implications of Common Core on Special Education students.
Spend the next 7 minutes reading the article independently.
Annotate as you read.
If appropriate create a text-dependent question based on your reading.
CONSIDERATIONS
The goal of Common Core State Standards is to focus on the knowledge and skills needed by all students so the can be successful in college and careers...Students who are receiving special education services are no exception. (McNulty & Gloeckler, 2011)
Number 1
Common Core State Standards are aligned with college and work expectations.
Number Three
Not every student with disabilities will meet academic standards, but that is not a reason to stop providing support to help them achieve at high levels of learning.
Number Two
Common Core State Standards include rigorous content and application of knowledge through higher-order skills.
COMMERCIAL BREAK
Wish the CCCSS were accommodated and modified for your students' IEP goals?
ACTIVITY
After reading the article, work with your group to analyze the implications of Common Core on Special Education students.
Independent Reading
Read independently for 7 minutes.
Post-It Note Party
On your post-it note, respond to the following question:

How will the Common Core State Standards positively impact students receiving Special Education services?
Tabletop Twitter
On your table, there is a passage from the article you read.
Your mission is to "tweet" about the passage with your table mates.
You should post at least one original thought and one response to a fellow tweeter.
POST-IT NOTE PARTY
Now, read everyone's responses to determine the best answer.

SUMMARY
During this breakout session, we analyzed the implications of Common Core transition for Special Education services.
RESULTS
CCSS provides an historic opportunity to improve access to rigorous standards for students with disabilities by focusing on fewer, clearer, and higher standards.
SOLVED PROBLEMS
Through Universal Design Learning (UDL) and the implementation of CCSS, (Special Education) students will be more prepared than ever for college, leadership, and life.
REMAINING PROBLEMS
We must be prepared to create supportive social and behavioral environments that enable all students to access and achieve success in the general education curriculum. (McLaughlin, 2012)
NEW CHALLENGES
Integrating technology
Implementing testing accommodations
Accommodating for rigorous standards
Collaborating effectively with teachers
Creating IEP goals aligned to CCSS
Introducing CCSS to parents/families
COMMERCIAL BREAK
Looking for a cool, new way to align IEP goals to CCSS?
Number One
Recognize that students with disabilities are a heterogeneous group and require individualized educational planning.
Number Three
Understand and support the alignment of IEPs with Common Core.
Number Two
Distinguish between accommodations and modifications.
CONSIDERATIONS
However, implementation of CCSS must begin with the characteristics of these students clearly in mind.(McLaughlin, 2012).
QUESTION
How will the Common Core standards impact students receiving Special Education services?
